Here we go with some more news as part of my sneaky campaign to have gaming seen a positive light. I must admit, I really don’t understand this at all, but apparently some scientists working on the Rosetta@home project decided to give gamers a chance to see if they could break down a protein strand by rendering it in a 3D, game-like interface and allowing gamers to fill in the blanks that their computers were struggling with – and it worked. I’d probably be much more impressed if I could understand even a word of what they’re saying, but I can’t. Anyway, if you can make more sense of it, check out the original article here.

Of course, this stuff all makes total sense to a gamer. Scientists should give us a shot at quantum theory and zero point energy.
